Iíve used S-line FDs for about three years now. I have a small stack of them so Iím good for now but a few months ago I needed to add another disc to an online order to make it worth paying the shipping so figured Iíd try a C-line.

While Iím usually not a big fan of the C-line plastic this FD is awesome. Itís like a longer, glidier version of my S-lines.

The one I got isnít the hard, slick plastic but is that slightly softer and grippier C-line which I donít mind.

This sounds awesome, and I totally plan to buy one when I can find one at 168g. I tried one in luster plastic and it's way more overstable than even my swirly S-line. Not at all what I was looking for.

I added a C-line to the bag today for day 2 of the Okie Doubles tournament. It did some work in the woods, mostly FH. Threw my swirly S-line and flippy S-line a couple times apiece too.

FDs rule, hopefully Discmania gets to drink from the Innova trough soon.

“The Cloud Breaker 2 is now SOLD OUT! Thank you to everyone for taking part in this insanely popular worldwide release. Have a great weekend and let 'em fly! We'll always improve the way we work and increase the numbers on the products you deserve, always.”

I am sorry but this feels hollow and disingenuous.

I have followed Discmania for a long time and for several releases the cart on the website has not worked as it does on other websites.

It is a simple fix to have items stay in a person’s cart for a few minutes to give them a chance to checkout, Yet Discmania refuses to implement this simple fix, there must be a reason. Please explain what’s the reason?

Or put a cap on how many discs a person can order at a time...I got a couple cloudbreakers today from a site that had a cap of two per order. It was actually nice to see they were trying to get these to as many different people as possible. I’m going to throw mine and see if they are the next great coming but they probably won’t kick my terns out of the bag.

This style of selling stuff and limited production(which I understand isn’t totally in their control) is what made me ditch the FDs from my bag. For me, I can’t justify 30-40 bucks for one disc when I play a lot of solo rounds on a fairly brushy home course.

They had a five disc limit so I guess they get partial credit for trying.

Better than nothing I guess...I didn’t look at their site because I know how crazy it gets with these releases. The resale prices on some of these on the discmania fb pages is insane already

This article explains the cart hold problem: https://www.discmania.net/blogs/disc...gmGyGt963TlGVE

The article that BTV posted does a good job of summing things up.

To add to that as someone who used to run an online sales website in another industry, I can tell you that a company cannot simply change their shopping cart system/website over night. It takes a ton of work to rebuild an entire website/inventory/cart that can take weeks/months to do. I truly believe Discmania cares about their customers and that they want to make things right to as many people as possible.

Eagle winning back to back tournaments immediately before the release and becoming the hottest player on the planet certainly probably played into this release, outside of just the normal Discmaniac's who are in on these releases.

S-line FDís back in stock if anyone needs any.
